At first I believed it since yes you can harvest tears, but then I read this article

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/05/30/salt-made-from-tears_n_1556768.html

somewhere on the bottom it says The satirical monster supply store -- which makes fake products and sells them for charity -- has many other options available beyond salt. So I guess that product they're selling is pretty much novelty. But it does make a unique gift that I've never seen anywhere else..

From the product page also it says We're terribly sorry but the humans of Hoxton have been a little too full of joy. As such,tears have run dry and we're regrettably unable to fulfill your orders. We're working to inspire a little more gloom and will have your package along shortly.This could take up to three weeks , so please bear with us.

Which basically means they're backordered.

I could be wrong about everything about this post.. so more google searching may be necessary.

This site tells a bit more about the charity. I can remember reading a story about the one in Brooklyn years ago.

@joshobra: Good research, thanks. Pretty polished site, though, right? I thought it was fun.

@gionot: Guess it goes back a ways - Seems the whole concept really inspires creativity. Love that they have a real storefront. Thanks for the article.

@notanaardvark: You're welcome! It was a pretty minimal and "old-age dark witchcraft(?)" website. Kind of similar to the show Oddities. But yes, I liked the website and their products. Their storefront is nicely set up too, one where urban shoppers shop at.
